Bullshit. Only vital to a neocon. And the SOS is talking about a coalition to remove Assad. If Putin says no then WWIII?

Trump has literally done a complete 180. Liar.

Maybe he thinks the continued use of gas there would lead to more refugees headed west....

Bill Mitchell, the biggest Trump defender on the planet weighs in.

No, not our lovable MMT Bill Mitchell. :(

Um we're not at war with Syria. We took out a chemical weapons base. Trump could easily have taken out Assad himself but did not.

Trump is clearly playing 5D chess and is many moves ahead of everyone, supporters and detractors alike.

Malmo's Ghost said...

Bill Mitchell is easily the most obsequious Trump cheerleader. Trump could be discovered as the modern day Pol Pot and Mitchell would still lick his ass lovingly.

Six, More like Trump is getting played and good.

At least Trump took care of the illegal immigration problem before moving on to national security.

Lol.

All the "civilized nations" he didn't tell in advance. But he did brief the Russians. And if he didn't tell State Dept who's this "us?"

My favorite response:

He acted in direct opposition to the Russians & you still think he's a Russian? You need medication

Matt

China's total foreign reserve holdings are in excess of $10 trillion US. ???


Where do you get that figure from ?

Treasuries are $1 trillion and foreign reserves about $3 trillion ??

Can you point me in the right direction ??

Matt Franko said...

Foot I think that was recently linked to by Tom here it was an imf report or something....

And it is 10aT usd EQUIVALENT... I.E. if you took all of the disparate China foreign currency reserves and converted them to usd using recent exchange rates then you would get 10T....

It seems 9/11 was not a big enough wake up call.

Unbelievable, staggering, colossal stupidity. The neocons are in complete control, and they couldn't give a shit about blowback or the dismemberment of Syria in favour of the most evil psychopaths in the world today. So much for ISIS being on Trump's hit list. He's just sided with them by playing into the hands of the neocons, the Saudis and Israel.

Obomber wasn't stupid enough to let the neocons entice him into something like this. That's because Obomber had some smarts. Trump is not only fucking stupid but he's also a dangerous maniac. And he did this while hosting the Chinese premier! It's a fucked up world when the forces fighting Russia, Iran, Syria and possibly bringing up the rear China, and those siding with tyranny are the liberal democracies who have somehow come the the conclusion that a Salafi jihadi state would not only be desirable but also one that can be non-violent! It seems 9/11 was nothing more than the snooze button.

And he did this while hosting the Chinese premier!

It's like poking Chinese President Xi in the eye with a fork.

Trump is incompetent.

John said...

I'm so incensed that there's a big typo. Should be "when the forces fighting AGAINST TYRANNY ARE Russia..."


John said...

Tom, what's he thinking, if he even thinks, that is? What, that'll show the Chinese motherfuckers? This is government 101 (don't intentionally spit in the faces of your guests), unless you're a neocon whacko or want to pick a fight. If Kushner really is his new consigliere, then he's as mental as Bannon and Pence.

This has just further solidified the growing relationship between China and Russia. If they had any doubts whatever, they've been quashed. They know the incestuous paedophile is gunning for them.

John said...

Incompetent is the least of it! I hope he gets impeached on the flimsiest of pretexts. Although now that he's given in to the deep state, that's never gonna happen. For the sake of humanity, the Kremlin needs to release that tape of Trump and Kushner spit roasting Ivanka.

Tom Hickey said...

what's he thinking, if he even thinks, that is?

I don't think he though this through if at all, or consulted with competent people on it.

Reports are that Trump gets his info from cable news and thinks it is sufficient. He just shot from the hip based on what he saw on the news today and probably also at the instigation of the generals he put in charge.

John said...

Tom: "Reports are that Trump gets his info from cable news and thinks it is sufficient."

It's not like he even hides it. For a long time intelligent observers would say that he's doing this deliberately in some Moriarty or Sith plan. No, he actually believes this propaganda! Anyone who knowingly quotes Breitbart or Fox is a fucking retard. Is he that much of a simpleton that he believes (I won't say "think") Breitbart and Fox are intelligent and truthful sources? This when he has the capacity of the state apparatus to find out the truth about anything happening in the world! The man is a fruitcake, a total fucking fruitcake! Putin, release the tape!!!!!!
